A quartet from Richard's Trampoline Club went to Birmingham for the last national grade one and two competitions of the season.

The grade one competition was on the Saturday, and Elliot Stratton had an excellent day.

There had been some doubt about him competing as he was flying out the next day to Australia for a month's training.

He started his set routine well, just a small amount of travel during one of the somersaults. For the voluntary routine, Elliot used his highest difficulty level so far at nationals, and managed it well.

This gave him the total score required to qualify for the men's competition, which is what he is aiming for next year.

He managed to repeat the same routine for the finals and finished in second place and now with high hopes of a medal at the British Championships in July.

Nick Ledwold amazed everyone by competing, having recently broken his collarbone while on holiday and also suffered some injuries to his ankles.

He successfully completed both his routines, without having to drop his difficulty level.

Lacking in practice though and strength, this reflected in his marks and left him down in 11th place.

Charlie Mussino suffered due to an error in his set routine which severely damaged his marks. He went on to do an excellent voluntary routine, with a high difficulty level for him.

At grade two, Lauren Doherty did not do her best set routine.

However she improved during her voluntary routine, using her higher difficulty level which is among the highest in her age group.
